        General Pershing recommends future Secretary of State George Marshall to write an article on the U.S. military effort in the First World War

      Two Typed Letters Signed, "John J. Pershing," the first letter as General of the Armies, 1 page, 7" x 9.25" on his official letterhead, Washington, July 2, 1923, to F. H. Hooper, editor of the Encyclopædia Britannica recommending the services of his aide, George C. Marshall to author an article on the United States military efforts during the First World War. Offered together with a second Typed Letter Signed, "John J. Pershing,", 1 page, 7" x 9.25" on his formerly official letterhead, Washington, March 18, 1927, to F. H. Hooper, editor of the Encyclopædia Britannica concerning rewriting the same article for the next edition. Light creases, a few foxed spots and minor marks from paperclips, else near fine condition. In 1923, editor F. H. Hooper approached Pershing to write an article for the 13th edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica. Pershing, who was then composing his own memoir of his experiences in the Great War, declined the offer, but recommended his aide, future Secretary of State, George C. Marshal, then a Major and one of Pershing's aides. Pershing responds to Hooper's offer in full: "I have carefully considered the proposal contained in your letter of June 30th for me to contribute a chapter on the United Sates Command of Allied Forces for the history the Encyclopaedia Britannica purposes publishing, and I regret that it does not seem practicable for me to do this. Your offer is much appreciated and I am very sorry not to make a more favorable reply. Should you be in doubt as to who can prepare the chapter, I suggest my aide-de-camp, Major George C. Marshall, who is familiar with the facts in the matter. Major Marshall and myself leave tomorrow on a five weeks tour of inspection so it would not be possible for him to start on this work, should you desire him to undertake it, until after his return, the last week in August." Apparently Marshall did not accept the offer (if it was tendered to him at all). Like Pershing, Marshall, was also composing his own memoir of the late war. Never confident in his skills as a writer, he shelved the project after showing it to a publisher who promptly asked for revisions. The volume, Memoirs of My Service in the World War would be published posthumously in 1976. (Ed Cray, General of the Army: George C. Marshall, Soldier and Statesman, 2000, p. 95) Pershing's own memoir of his time in France, My Experiences in the World War, garnered the general a Pulitzer Prize in 1932. Whoever Hooper found to write the chapter proved to be a disappointment. In March 1927, Pershing, who had retired in 1924, accepted Hooper's request to undertake a rewrite: "Please accept the assurance of my appreciation of your attitude toward the matter of having the account of the American effort in the World War rewritten. It certainly should be done. I am surprised that the man who wrote it should have made so many errors as to facts and conclusions. It is far from being an accurate or fair account of what our armies did. As you suggested, I shall have the articles prepared and submitted to you for insertion in your next edition. I would be of advantage to know about when that opportunity will occur..." The fourteenth edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, published in 1929, included a chapter by Pershing on the "Meuse-Argonne Operation."

        The World Crisis, a remarkable set of British first editions with five dated inscriptions from Churchill to his Aunt and significant annotations by her son, Churchill's Cousin, concerning the Battle of Jutland

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1923. First edition. Hardcover. This is an extraordinary inscribed and annotated British first edition set of Churchill's history of the First World War. Each of the five books (the 1916-1918 book was issued in two volumes) is inscribed and dated by Churchill to his Aunt Clara. Clarita "Clara" Jerome Frewen (1851-1935) was the eldest sister of Churchill's mother and wife of Moreton Frewen, the famously slipshod editor of Churchill's first book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force. Three inscriptions are dated pre-publication and all five are warmly personal, with Churchill using only his first name. The inscriptions alone would make the set a prize, but it is the second family association that makes the set a unique piece of history. The books passed to Clara's son and Churchill's first cousin, Captain Oswald Moreton Frewen (1887-1958). Oswald was a career naval officer who served under Churchill's leadership as First Lord of the Admiralty during both the First and Second World Wars. Oswald participated in every naval engagement in the North Sea during the First World War, after the war helped the Admiralty prepare the official history of the Battle of Jutland, and during the Second World War served as King's Harbour Master of Scapa Flow. THE ANNOTATIONS: Of note, according to the Frewen family, Oswald's own 1916 diary "is considered to be part of the United Kingdom's national archives because of his description of the Battle of Jutland," with a claim upon the volume made by the Royal Naval Museum, Portsmouth, England. Oswald's extensive annotations in this set appear throughout the two 1916-1918 volumes and run to thousands of words. These annotations are remarkably informed and informative, sharply critical, and compellingly interesting - to both collectors and scholars. Some of Oswald's criticism may be attributed to his partisan admiration of Admiral Jellicoe, some perhaps to jealousy toward a famous cousin. Nonetheless, Oswald's comments are not without some expressed admiration for his Cousin Winston's gifts - both literary and as a leader. And tempering the sharp criticism is the knowledge that Oswald actively sought - and received - his cousin Winston's inscriptions in books that Oswald read and annotated until Oswald's death in 1958. We have transcribed the entirety of Captain Frewen's annotations, producing a 22-page document which we will provide upon request. CONDITION: This set is in sound, unrestored condition, with the original bindings firm and intact - well short of fine but of course to be prized far more for provenance and content than for condition. Five volumes are first edition, first printing. Volume I, the 1911-1914 volume, is first edition, second printing (printed only three days after publication of the first printing). The blue cloth bindings are square and tight, but show some of the scuffing endemic to the smooth navy cloth and some wear to extremities. We note the following: slight outward warping to the 1915 volume boards; some minor fraying at the head of the 1915 volume spine; minor blistering of The Aftermath cloth (to which this particular volume was prone) on the upper front cover and lower right of the spine; minor discoloration spots to The Eastern Front front cover and a wrinkle (binding error rather than blistering) in the upper rear cover cloth. Spotting is substantially confined to the page edges and first and final leaves, the heaviest instance within the set observed on the inscribed page of the 1915 volume. We note no previous ownership marks beyond the author's inscriptions and Captain Frewen's annotations. The set is housed in a navy cloth slipcase with gilt print and decoration. PROVENANCE: This set has remained in the Frewen family until now, providing both sterling provenance and a unique opportunity for collectors.

The Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi adapted four Hearn tales into his 1965 film, Kwaidan. Some of his stories have been adapted by Ping Chong into his puppet theatre, including the 1999 Kwaidan and the 2002 OBON: Tales of Moonlight and Rain. In 1890, Hearn went to Japan and it was in Japan that he had found a home and his greatest inspiration. [Just a few excerpts from a fascinating and rich life]

        The Mysteries of the People or History of a Proletarian Family Across the Ages

      New York City - New York Labor News Company, 1923 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The New York Labor New's Company's striking edition of Eugene Sue's 'great masterpiece' The Mysteries of the People. Reviewed by John Hossack in the New York Times, the edition is far from a catchpenny affair. Catchpenny means inferior, showy, gotten up to attract and fool buyers. I can assure you this stricture does not apply to [The Mysteries of the People]. As your reviewer showed, the purpose of the translator and publishers is to help along the labor movement by furnishing a lesson from the past to enlighten the movement of to-day. (NYT 1904)Each volume contains a number of novels:Book One: The Gold Sickle, The Brass Bell, The Iron Collar, The Silver Cross, The Casque's Lark, The Poniard's HiltBook Two: The Branding Needle, The Abbatial Crosier, Carlovingian Coins, The Iron Arrow-Head, The Infants' Skull, The Pilgrim's Shell, The Iron Pincers, The Iron Trevet, The Executioner's KnifeBook Three: The Pocket Bible, The Blacksmith's Hammer, The Sword of Honor, The Galley-Slave's Ring. With portrait frontispiece of the author in volume one. Complete in three volumes. A scarce set rarely found complete. Condition: In full cloth bindings. Externally, sound with some light shelfwear and small marks only. Two of six hinges strained. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean throughout. Overall: GOOD..

        Original Hand Written Statement of Mary Florence Lassandro Taken by Inspector J.D. Nicholson Signed and Dated Edmonto April 24th / 23.

      Edmonton - 1923. () Very good. 2pp. Two folio pages (21.5 X 35.5 CM) somewhat roughly removed from a binder. Evidence of old staining and soiling from moisture. 68 lines of text or roughly 500 words in total. Also included with the manuscript are a number of contemporary news clippings on the subject. Also included is a three page folio copy / transcript of Nicholson's report. Also included is a copy of Horan's Bio. Of Nicholson. The story of the Emperor Pic murder is well told in the Horan Biography of Nicholson as Chapter XXIX. J.D. Nicholson was Assistant Superintendent of the Alberta Provincial Police and was headquartered in Edmonton. He was very concerned with the illegal bootlegging of whiskey from B.C. Through S.W. Alberta into Montana. The ring leader was Emilio Picariello who was centered in the Crowsnest Pass and worked with various people including his son Steve. An incident occured and Emperor Pic and a house maid, Florence Lassandro, Pic's sons girlfriend, murdered constable Steve Lawson. This event lead to both Pic and Lassandro being convicted of First Degree murder and sentenced to hang. Before the sentence was carried out Lassandro sent for Nicholson to make a statement. (related on p. 259 of the bio.) the document here is that statement in the orginal. (See transcript) the recorded facts seem to differ somewhat from published versions and this rare primary source document gives Lassandro's final statement on the facts. On May 22, 1923 Lassandro was hung being the only Alberta woman and the final. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [College Yearbook]: The 1923 Columbian

      New York: Senior Class of Columbia College. (1923). First. First and only edition. Bookplate, light edgewear to the boards and the front hinge weakening, but a sound, very good copy. 1923 Columbia Yearbook. Gehrig initially could not play intercollegiate baseball for Columbia because he had played baseball for a summer professional league during his freshman year, unaware that doing so jeopardized his eligibility to play any collegiate sport. Gehrig was ruled eligible to play on the Lions' football team and was a standout fullback and tackle. He later gained baseball eligibility and joined the Lions on that squad as well. But in this yearbook he is featured in photographs and accounts of his days on the football team over the 1922 season. Gehrig is pictured at least twice and is lauded for his "consistent line-plunging," although his efforts could not prevent the season from being "an unmitigated failure, with few, if any, redeeming qualities." Other notables pictured include the authors Corey Ford and Henry Morton Robinson, and Walter Koppisch, Gehrig's teammate, who was later elected to the College Football Hall of Fame. .

        THE ROVER

      1923. [inscribed by Conrad's wife] Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1923. Original blue cloth. Printer's advance mock-up copy of the first trade edition. The binding is the standard one for this American edition, but inside, the contents consist of the preliminary leaves through page 4 of the text -- after which the leaves are all blank. These are typically called "salesman's dummy" copies, but these Doubleday Page books weren't being sold door-to-door, so this is more likely an advance mock-up copy the publisher had provided Conrad in order to demonstrate how the finished book would appear in its binding.~The volume is in near-fine condition (slightly rubbed at the corners).~The front endpaper is inscribed in 1924 by Conrad's wife (widow? -- Conrad died during 1924), "To Campbell and Hilda Tilbury Fox, | With love and affectionate | regards from | Jessie Conrad Korzeniowska | 1924." Dr. Campbell Tilbury Fox attended to both Joseph and Jessie Conrad from 1918 on, and continued to serve as Jessie's doctor after her husband's death. Most likely, it was not long after Joseph's death that Jessie gave this advance copy of her husband's most-recent novel to their doctor; it is interesting that although Jessie George had grown up an Englishwoman, here she honors her husband by using the feminine version of his original Polish last name, Korzeniowski.

      [Michelin, Paris?, 1923], 1923Oblong 4to., First Edition thus, text in English, title and text in blue and black, with very numerous delightful cartoons throughout, neat signature on title; original illustrated wrappers, wire-stitched as issued, yapped edges, covers mildly age-soiled else a very good, clean copy of a rare booklet.One of the world's oldest trademarks, 'Bibendum' (the 'Michelin Man') was created in 1898 by cartoonist Marius Rossillon ['O'Galop'] at the instigation of Andre Michelin. The figure's first mass appearance was on the company's famous poster of 1898 since when it has continued to represent the Michelin company in over 150 companies.This very scarce booklet was produced to mark the figure's twenty-fifth anniversary. Since text and captions are entirely in English (but printed in France) we assume that this is the English version of a French promotional publication.A RARE SURVIVAL.
